Conveying compelling personal stories about the impact of foodborne illness becomes a norm across the food industry to motivate people at all levels to do the right thing every day to make food safe.
As a family that was directly affected by foodborne illness, we are very pleased that the Alliance has expanded the outreach of STOP to bring awareness and opportunity for major improvements to the food supply chain. By partnering with food suppliers and working to set goals and standards the food supply will become safer for us all.

If only one person benefits from the horrific experience my family went through, then it won’t be in vain.
The Alliance has given our story and experiences a purpose. So that together, we can make a change.

Even with the progress on food safety policy STOP has helped achieve, it remains a challenge to effectively implement prevention every day at every level of our large, diverse food system. We believe the motivation provided by STOP's compelling personal stories, coupled with multi-sector collaboration through the Alliance can contribute to realistically and sustainably tackling today’s food safety challenges.
Vanessa Coffman, PhDDirector, Alliance to Stop Foodborne Illness
The Alliance is made possible by the increasingly recognized need for more cooperative approaches to food safety and the importance of strong, mature food safety cultures.
Disconnected to Collaborative Action
The shift from disconnected to collaborative action is grounded in the common goals of many industry food safety leaders and consumer advocates to prevent illness through best practices, continuous improvement, and strong corporate food safety cultures.
